In her show, Nadia  explores the classic migrant’s’ conflict between the need to better integrate and the religious and cultural demands of their own communities. It is an auto-graphical ‘variety’ show where she explores these issues through 21 different characters including her Pakistani-born father. The show explores conflicts that come up through identity, sexuality and culture that Manzoor herself had to deal with growing up in her Pakistani family.
